Thanks for the query.

According to your description there is possibility of yeast infection.
Which can develop in the hot and moist areas like around breast and genital parts.
As you are having excess weight that will aggravate the problem.
So you better once consult gynecologist get examined and take treatment accordingly.
Meanwhile try to decrease your weight, take bath twice a day, prefer cotton inner wear, take plenty of oral fluids.

I have a l4-5 bulging disk. I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis. I had two spinal epidurals. The first one worked and the second one did not. The second one caused vaginal bleeding. I had an ultrasound and everything was clear. I had cramps and bad sciatica with the bleeding. I am a breast cancer survivor and was on tomaxifen. Could endometrosis cause sciatica? My periods have been Been severe since my completion of tomaxifen. My ob/yn says my bleeding issues are a result of perimenopause and my vagianl ultrasound have been clear. I Am I crazy for trying to link the two problems?

I am a 71-year-old mother of two, rather healthy womyn, whose right breast began purring June 1 (it is currently June 11). The vibrations are intermittent from short duration to significantly long-term (perhaps 40 seconds). My question is: if I should consult a physician, which specialty? Gyn? General Pract? Breast Surgeon? Please help me determine what step(s) to take as I am financially unable to make more than one appointment. Thanks!
